Who killed Annabel Harper? When a popular teen beauty's body is discovered by the pool at an elite tennis club, the regulars are shocked -- especially twelve-year-old Evie and her best friend, Chelsea. While everyone else is haunted by the teen's death, Evie and Chelsea jump on the case, dogging the footsteps of the lead detective as he investigates. As temperatures soar over the summer, tensions rise, fingers are pointed, and a heroic act sets in motion a chain of events readers will never see coming.

In the tradition of The Westing Game comes this debut mystery with a breathtaking twist.

Description

"In alternating chapters, narrator Chelsea fills readers in on all that happened the weeks before Annabel was found dead by the side of the club's pool, and after, as a local detective examined motives and opportunities among rising teen tennis stars, rich kids, and club personnel... Meanwhile, Evie, who is teased for being overweight, discovers she has a natural gift for tennis, though her tennis pro father seems not to notice. Readers learn more about Chelsea's mysterious and abusive past before the club's manager adopted her.... Once they get to the end, mystery lovers will want to go back and read it all again to find the hidden clues." — Marie Drucker, School Library Journal
